    Ownership Verified: Der Stig Bought Another BMW?!?! Oh, it's my grandpa's motorcycle. [2002 BMW R1150GS]

    Most of you are probably already aware that I've replaced the 919 with a GS, but figured I'd make a thread about it. After selling the 919, I was struck with replacement bike fever, even though with the proceeds from the sale of the 919, I could have gotten a locker and some nice bumpers for...

    Der Stig's 2008 Lexus GX470/Toyota Prado/Soccer Mom Mobile

    As I mentioned back on RTAM, I traded in the Hyundai Genesis just before Thanksgiving. I've been angling to get a 4x4 of some kind since I was old enough to drive and I deliberated over F150s, 100 series Landcruisers, 5th gen 4Runners, and GX470/460s. As much as I wanted an F150, I am not...

    Moab FG Offroad Jamboree May 4-8, 2020

    Since there were a few interested parties in BCS’s ZJ thread, I figured why not kick this off. But Der Stig, it’s 2019! Well my GX isn’t ready and I don’t have any more vacation time :p Not sure what the best time of year is, but I’m betting late Spring will probably be best. Paging @Kiki...

    Ownership Verified: Keep it in the Family -- 1995 Jaguar XJR

    So as some of you know from my post in RTAE and from other nebulous hints, LCG's XJR has new custodians :D CrazyJeeper and I bought the thing late last month. I've made many noises about wanting to buy this unique and special car for some time and am happy that the opportunity came up. So, I...

    Fun Routes in Germany

    So for my RingMeet and subsequent travels around Germany next month, I finally made hotel reservations and generally planned stuff out with my friend. If anyone has some suggestions for fun routes along the way, I'm all ears. Here's the outline of our plan: Monday 7-Aug Wiesbaden Pick up...

    RingMeet Beater Search 2017

    Following on from this post, this thread is to serve as an ad dumping ground for RingMeet beaters. I'm still going back and forth and will probably just rent a motorcycle, but if the right beater comes up... My criteria: ?1k total expenditure (some leeway here, but I'd like to have some room...

    Ownership Verified: La Bella Fuoco [2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Sport]

    It all started last year with a test ride of a '15 Multistrada...I was doomed to own one of these. It simply is the best motorcycle I've ever ridden, maniacal acceleration, brutal exhaust note (once you take the cat off :evil: ) , yet comfortable, serene, and quick on it's feet. Electronically...

    Ownership Verified: A Proper Four Cylinder Honda [2002 Honda 919]

    Honda 919s in matte black seem to spawning in DFW... :P Picked this up after binning the VFR and stupidly cruising CL after receiving a bonus. While I wait for plastics to come in and get painted, I bought this 2002 919 with 46k on the clock with decent looking PR2s and barely any marks on it...

    Ownership Verified: 333HP, 6 Cylinder, RWD Kimchi Barge

    Here's the BMW's replacement, a '14 Genesis 3.8. It's full on Suomi-spec: no packages, only option is cargo tray. Being a Genesis though means that this car is hardly stripped. The slew of standard features like leather, heated, power seats (driver's and passenger's), Bluetooth audio, XM...

    Ownership Verified: Two Wheeled Bliss ['99 Honda VFR800]

    I'm in love :heart: 1999 Honda VFR purchased from the second owner (who bought it in '01 with 4k on it). It has 71,600-odd on it now :D Spectre and I drove down to Houston yesterday, I handed a nice gentleman some cash and when he began regretting his decision, immediately rode off. We...

    Ownership Verified: My Third "First" Bike... [1995 Suzuki GS500E]

    So, as some of you know, I have sold my old flame ( :drums: ) and moved on. Getting tied up and taken away. That was Tuesday. Yesterday, (Thursday), this happened :D A 1995 Suzuki GS500E appeared on CL for $60 more than I sold my GS for. This one runs, is titled, inspected and fully...

    DFW Texas Meet

    Eunos Cosmo suggested we do a DFW meet as there are quite a few of us on here. Post suggests for time/date/location and if you're interested. I'm limited to Sundays only, sadly, but I'm interested.

    8/5/12 Car Show in The Woodlands, TX

    Yes, the town name is pretentious as it sounds. Yes, "The" is part of the name and is capitalized :P On to the show! Hello. :may: First one I've seen on the road. Neat SHO. Bored to 3.4L with a Quaife LSD. Needz moar tarbo. '70 Challenger R/T 383 Magnum 4 speed...

    No 56k: So I paid a visit to Hemmings Motor News...

    We got a tour on a Saturday while I was on vacation in May when they usually don't run them from a nice chap who'd worked there since the '90s. We talked everything from cars to guitar tube amps and had a great time. I was too busy chatting with the guy to take too many pictures. I apologize...

    Metal Meltdown: Metal Music Discussion

    I know there's a lot of metal enthusiasts here on FG, so I figured I'd make a thread (having not found a previous one) where we could discuss/recommend bands, albums, , talk about live performances, etc. I don't see this thread becoming a giant bash fest, but please don't flame other's...

    Book Request for the FG Deutsche Abteilung [paging Dr Grip]

    I'm looking for Thilo Sarrazin's Deutcshland schafft sich ab in English in a format with the capability of text search. I'm writing a thesis paper related to Zuwanderung and was wondering if anyone had an English pdf or similar version. My uni's library has the German version, but I'd like to...

    Ownership Verified: Two Wheeled Turd [1981 Suzuki GS850G]

    Here it is in all its glory! A 1981 brown Suzuki GS850G. 843cc of meh, with poor suspension and brakes, only 77hp, but equipped with shaft drive. These bikes are often used as drag bikes due to their very sturdy frame. The thing weighs 617lbs. So, yeah, more than 4 times what I weigh :lol...

    Transfering Boot Drives

    So, like an idiot, I used my 7(!) year old 250 GB HDD that came with my Gateway 700GR that my folks bought for me in August 2004. Because I had everything backed up on my 320 GB new drive. Anyway, cut to the chase, I just did a SMART reading and fitness was "0%." Not good. Thus, my next...

    What Form of Motorsport Would You Compete in?

    This came up in a discussion between myself and Spectre, so here we go. This is not necessarily your favorite, but the one you would want to compete in. Here are some brief bits on each category. Each picture is a link to the motorsport's respective category. Formula 1 FIA GT3 NASCAR...

    GTA IV and EFLC Modding

    Seeing as the old thread hasn't really been updated, I created this new thread so that us noobs to GTA modding can get things running right. Here's my post from RT to start us off: Not really sure where else to put this, but I figured Blayde and Viper would see this. So, I've started modding...
